In the spirit of the “Weekly Photo Challenge”, I aim to take a photo when I see the new topic and accompanying suggestions. Because I live in the Southern hemisphere sometimes this isn’t possible eg Spring, Snow or Squirrel wouldn’t work for me but where I can, rather than lift my best archived photo I try to look at the topic through fresh eyes. Because the natural environment particularly interests me I look there first. Sometimes I’m disappointed with what I have to show but I figure that’s just part of accepting a challenge and hope I can do better next time.
For the challenge this week I’ve chosen some unusual fungi. Maybe it’s not that the fungi are unusual just that I’ve never seen them before.
The challenge this week was to represent, “Collage“, I searched down low for my images.
The Spiky Bridge in Tasmania was built by a convict road gang in the 1840s apparently after the superintendent in charge of the convicts was giving a hair-raising ride home by the owner of a property adjacent to the “road”. You can read more interesting information about it here.

It’s winter here in South Australia and cold so there aren’t many insects about, few insects means few of their predators. There are some lizards I know I can find because I’ve discovered their refuges. When the sun warms the ground there are hundreds of little Skinks around here but I don’t know where they go when it’s cold.

My take on this week’s theme of, “Delta” for the Weekly Photo Challenge.
I often see planes flying over and was lucky enough to spot this one this afternoon, perfect for “Transient“, I think.
or was the theme, “Drifter”?
